Here’s the scoop about which knife, tactical knife, folding knife or lightsaber. It’s all about how much you want to spend. Sure there are some knives that are better than others, but what good is it to spend a boat load of money on something that you are going to lose or break. I have gone through cell phones and flashlights in the past because at first they were small and easy to carry, but then they were even easier to lose. Not to mention that after working the Gatco Sharpener booth at the NRA Convention last Summer I noticed that no matter what knife people were carrying around with them, 80% of people didn’t even have a sharp knife.
The Gatco Sharpening System that we sell the most of are the 10003 and 10005 because they aren’t that pricey and they are easy to understand. The 10005 sharpening system has a sharpening stone for doing serations and that’s a pretty big deal for tactical knives. Being able to get in there and get the hard to sharpen parts of the blade is a big deal even for a small blade. The serations should work like a saw and for small blades, the job of cutting through rope or re-enforced packaging tape ect should be easy if the blade is sharp, how much you spend on a knife can make it a better blade, but only if you sharpen it right.
